Feria de Sevilla in Philadelphia 2005

PHILADELPHIA, PA, April, 2005- After sold out success with its debut in Philadelphia last year, Raíces Culturales Latinoamericanas and International House Philadelphia will bring the colors, sounds and flavors of the Feria de Sevilla en Philadelphia to the Delaware Valley for the second time, this year extended to two days, encouraging revelers to “make it a weekend!”

Saturday evening will feature performances by Philadelphia’s own Flamenco del Encuentro and Pasión y Arte who will explore where the art of flamenco has been and where it is going from 8-10pm, followed by Sunday’s 3-8pm re-creation of the traditional Spanish fair, Feria de Sevilla, with flamenco dance, castanet and guitar workshops with local troupes, arts and crafts for kids, tapas, Iberian fixed price menu by Café Habana, flamenco photo exhibit, and a special performance at 7pm by Edwin Aparicio and Company with guest artist Carmela Greco. Saturday’s performances take place at the Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts, 3680 Walnut Street. Sunday’s event takes place at International House, 3701 Chestnut Street.
